When severe winter weather strikes, it’s important to be aware of the health-related issues that the cold weather can cause and to be prepared.
Home for the Holidays
By Tony Montcalm
Randy Dean was looking forward to having the whole family together on Christmas.
And, after almost 20 days in the hospital, he was glad to be home to see them.
On Dec. 24 — “in the morning,” he was quick to say, lest anyone think he’s going to spend a minute longer away from his family than he had to — Dean walked out of Tanner Rehab Facility at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and joined his family for Christmas. That he walked out at all is itself a bit of a season’s miracle: earlier in December, an infection required doctors to remove most of Dean’s right leg below the knee.
